Reforms to the Supervision of Australia's Financial Markets - Exposure Draft of Fees Regulations and Consultation Paper


Friday, 18 June 2010

Content ID:



In August 2009 the Treasurer and the Minister for Financial Services, Superannuation and Corporate Law announced that the Government had decided to transfer the responsibility for supervision of Australia's domestic licensed financial markets from market operators to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

The Corporations Amendment (Financial Market Supervision) Act 2010, giving effect to that decision, received Royal Assent on 25 March 2010.

The Corporations (Fees) Amendment Act 2010 supports this transfer of supervision by allowing ASIC to levy fees on market operators to cover its costs for supervision. The proposed Corporations (Fees) Amendment Regulations 2010 support this Act. They provide details of the proposed fees structure, including dates, amounts, and other points of reference by which fees will be levied.

The consultation paper seeks comments on the exposure draft of the proposed regulations.
